Resource control

Activities concept

Simply controlling a resource point, structure or such brings those resources to the player, no resource delivery is needed.


The first video game about Resource control was released in 1998.

Blizzard Entertainment, THQ and Arcen Games has published most of these games

This is similar to resource generation, but you can't build the generators yourself freely. Instead, you must capture them or build them at specific locations.

Note that this turns into resource harvesting if you need to send people to harvest and deliver the resources at the resource point.
